What our customers think of the Neopigg® Shield concept

What our customers think of the Neopigg® Shield concept

Pig Producer from Denmark:

"I decided to try Neopigg® Shield because in the past, piglets often had problems going from the weaner diet to the starter diet. I used to use zinc to ease the feeding transition and reduce the occurrence of diarrhea. Since using NeopiggTM Shield, there have been no piglets with thin feces or diarrhea during the feed shift. I feel really good about this new concept"

Danish Pig Producer from Denmark:

"Since starting with the Neopigg® Shield concept, I have observed a notable increase in the number of uniform pigs."

Pig Producer from the Netherlands:

"The piglets on the new Provimi feed could be delivered one week earlier compared to the piglets fed with my usual feed, and this without health problems"

Pig Producer from the Netherlands:

"When I feed our piglets with this program, the technical performance of our piglets is always good and without health issues."

Pig Producer from Belgium:

"I believe we can control stool quality with this concept, even without zinc oxide and antibiotics. And, yet, on my farm the piglets are weaned very early and the infection pressure is high."

Good farm management and better production go hand-in-hand

In combination with good farm management, Neopigg® Shield can contribute to healthier piglets and a decrease in the need to use antibiotics and therapeutic zinc. It enables a more sustainable business.

Note: Results are dependent on specific farm hygiene and sanitary conditions.
